LA Kings Dustin Brown Will Retire as The King of Kings

LOS ANGELES — Talk about feeling like you just got hit by the proverbial ton of bricks…

At about 1:00 PM PDT on April 28, 2022, the Los Angeles Kings announced that veteran forward and former team captain Dustin Brown will retire after the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

My first thought was, “this is the end of an era in Los Angeles Kings hockey,” and what an era it has been.

Before going further, let me state for the record that until this season, when I had to place my coverage of the Kings on hold, due to some important obligations, not to mention undergoing four separate eye surgeries (still recovering, but it’s going well), I have had the good fortune, the honor, and the privilege of covering Brown’s entire National Hockey League career.
